I am a queer Warwickshire-based stage, screen and immersive director with a hidden disability. I'm Artistic Director of Liminal Stage Productions and Associate Learning Practitioner at the RSC, and was a Transform Clore Fellow in 2021.
I create formally ambitious stage, screen and immersive productions that explore the interplay between different media, genres & forms, and that interrogate alternative perspectives in order to tell urgent, powerful stories about what it means to be human.
My current project, GREY MAN by Channel 4 Young Vic Playwright Lulu Raczka, is currently streaming free and on-demand at: www.liminalstage.com/greyman.
Recent and upcoming projects:
StoryFutures Academy's VP Futures Development Zone supported by Epic Games and ILM
An RSC seed commission, FLEX: a queer love story in live motion capture
Katie Mitchell's live multi-camera video production of ORLANDO adapted by Alice Birch at the Schaubuehne (1st AD/2nd Unit Director)
I trained at the RSC with Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman, at Donmar Trafalgar, and at the Print Room with Lucy Bailey. In 2016, I creatively produced & directed the transfer of my bold theatrical experiment, GREY MAN, at Theatre503. Previously, I creatively produced & directed my ACE-funded & “technically inventive” (The Stage) HOWARD BARKER DOUBLE BILL at Arcola (2015) and my ACE-funded centennial adaptation of WOYZECK launching Omnibus (2013). I was the youngest founding Board member of Stage Directors UK, have been a Trustee of the Directors Charitable Foundation, and am a Directing Tutor at Mountview.
SCREEN EXPERIENCE WITH KATIE MITCHELL
In 2019 I was 1st AD/2nd Unit Director on pre-recorded content for Katie Mitchell's ORLANDO
at the Schaubuehne and ran a multi-camera R&D on-set for my GREY MAN, which is now streaming at https://www.liminalstage.com/greyman)
